Nearly 500 species of our favorite plants are threatened with extinction. Twenty seven species are listed as “critically endangered”.
In this program Bill Thornton looks at some of the leading threats to all cacti, with special attention to three endangered Arizona species, what has been and is being done, and with examples from some of the world’s most endangered plants and what needs to be done to save them. Are we up to the task?
Bill is a second generation native Arizonan, lifelong desert plant lover, long time TCSS member and frequent cactus rescuer. He also serves on the boards of the Arizona Heritage Alliance and Friends of Ironwood Forest.
Please come and enjoy an evening with Bill. Have some excellent refreshments, win some wonderful plants and take home a free plant provided by TCSS. It is an opportunity to learn a few things, gather some plants and enjoy a great program.
